The latest release from Quadrille Publishing House's 'New Voices in Food' series is from Niamh Shields titled 'Comfort & Spice - Recipes for modern living'. Niamh is the author of 'Eat Like a Girl' blog which is one of the UK's most followed food blogs.
Seperated into sections titled Brunch, Speedy Suppers, Long Weekend, Sugar & Spice and Drinks, there is a lot of comfort to be found in this book with everything from lemon and ricotta pancakes with raspberries to Beijing dumplings with chilli and soy dipping sauce. There is also a really helpful section on what to do with leftovers; packed with useful tips for transforming your leftovers into delicious new meals.
Niamh has also featured recipes for more elegant dishes like scallops with samphire and pancetta and Ras el Hanout lamb shanks with cous cous. There are a broad spectrum of dishes from around the globe that really make this a fab book for every day use. There is no pretense, no faffy skilled technique required; this is good, home-cooking with flavours from around the world and nothing is overly complicated or scary to try and attempt. Definitely the kind of book that provide no intimidation for any level of cook but creates really lovely meals perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There are some nice pictures in the book, but I only wish there were more as some of the recipes sounds amazing and a picture alongside every one would be fantastic! Looking forward to Niamh's next cook book already, but not before I have literally cooked my way through a good chunk of her first cook book, Comfort & Spice. Great job Niamh, we love it!
